Pakistan has signed a contract to sell 10 Super Mushshak Trainer Aircraft to Nigerian Air Force.

“The contract signing ceremony was held at Abuja (Nigeria) where Air Vice Marshal Iya Ahmed Abdullahi and Air Marshal Arshad Malik, Chairman of the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC), signed the contract,” PAF spokesman Air Commodore Syed Mohammad Ali was quoted as saying by Dawn Saturday.

The contract includes operational training and technical support and assistance to the NAF. The Pakistan Air Force would completely establish this facility in the shortest possible time, he said.

Pakistan has plans to sell about 100 Mushshak trainer aircraft to Turkey. In June this year, PAC and Qatar Emiri Air Force signed an agreement for supply of Super Mushshak Aircraft. However, the number of trainers Qatar purchased was not revealed.

The A (Norfolk) Coy training team to the Nigerian Army School of Infantry (NASI) has just delivered a 2 week range package for the Special Warfare Wing (SWW) Counter Terrorism (CT) cse and the Trackers cse. The range package was a great success with the Nigerian Army soldiers particularly enjoying the competition of the march and shoot. The training team has worked hard to improve the soldiers weapon handling skills and accuracy with their weapons. The standard of both skill at arms and marksmanship notably improved over the package. The team ran shoots from various ranges and practised the Nigerian soldiers in long range firing, pistol shoots, firing from the standing and kneeling positions, night firing, snap shooting and close quarter marksmanship. The package culminated with a combined march and shoot competition for both courses.

Second P18N offshore patrol vessel arrives in Nigeria


Mrityunjoy Mazumdar, Alameda, California - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

08 November 2016


NNS Unity arrived in Lagos on 4 November. Source: Nigerian Navy



The Nigerian Navy's second Chinese-built 95.5 m-long P18N offshore patrol vessel (OPV) NNS Unity (F 92) arrived in Nigeria on 4 November.

Nigerian Navy spokesman Commodore Christian Ezekobe was quoted as saying that Unity "will consolidate on the successes being recorded in the fight against piracy, maritime crime, and other illegalities in our maritime domain up to the Gulf of Guinea."

The initial plan was for the work on Unity to the finished in Nigeria at the naval dockyard in Port Harcourt, which would be upgraded for the purpose with Chinese assistance, but photographs of the vessel show that it was completed in China before its delivery voyage.

When Nigeria received its first P18N NNS Centenary in February 2015, the then naval chief of staff said the second would be delivered later that year, but Unity 's arrival was subsequently delayed.

Satellite imagery showed that it had left the Wuchang Shipbuilding yard in Hubei province where it was built and was moored near Qidong north of Shanghai on 2 August 2015; it was seen at the same location again on 21 July.

IHS Jane's understands that the delay was largely due to problems with the propulsion shafting system during initial sea trials off Shanghai.

The Nigerian Navy statement said it left China on 15 September and made port calls in Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, South Africa, and Angola on its way to Lagos.

Nigerian Air Force receives two Bell 412 helicopters


Erwan de Cherisey, Paris - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

03 February 2017



The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) formally handed over two new Bell 412EP helicopters to the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) during a ceremony held at Lagos' international airport on 27 January.

NCS officials told local media that it was handing over standard-configuration 412EP civilian helicopters, supporting equipment, and accessories worth NGN9.7 billion (USD32 million) that had been impounded due to irregularities in the importation process.

"The unknown importer could not produce an end-user certificate from the office of the National Security Adviser (NSA)," the NCS's Frank Allanah was quoted as saying. "Consequently, seizure was effected on 7 November 2016."

NAF chief of staff Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar was cited as saying that the helicopters are configured for military operations.

Rotimi Amaechi, the former governor of Rivers State (2007-2015), subsequently released a statement saying the aircraft were purchased by his administration to improve its security capabilities. He said the office of the NSA of the then president Goodluck Jonathan (2010-2015) had initially approved the acquisition and that the federal government had supported it by contributing USD15 million.

He added that the federal government later blocked the delivery of the helicopters due to opposition from Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, who served as Jonathan's education minister before succeeding Amaechi as the governor of Rivers State after the 2015 elections.

"Governor Wike has decided to abandon and dump the helicopters because he does not care about the safety and security of lives and property in the state," Amaechi said.

Wike's spokesman countered by saying the current governor "has no need for armoured helicopters because he has provided the good people of Rivers State with good governance and they are happy with him".

Le Nigeria renforce ses capacités aériennes



Le Super Tucano © Cosmao



L'industriel brésilien Embraer vient d'annoncer que Brazilia cédait trois appareils d'occasions A-29 Super Tucano au Nigeria. Ce monoturbopropulseur constitue un parfait avion léger de reconnaissance et d'attaque.

Confronté au terrorisme, au premier rang duquel le mouvement Boko Haram, les forces armées nigériennes montent en puissance au premier rang desquelles ses forces aériennes. Début d'année, le Nigeria a budgété l'achat de trois monoréacteurs multi-rôles sino-pakistanais JF-17 Thunder. Près de 16 M$ ont été provisionnés pour cet achat, les appareils devraient être livrés dès cette année. Cette commande fait suite à l'achat de dix avions d'entraînement légers Super Mushshak de Pakistan Aeronautical Complex, ainsi qu'à l'acquisition d'hélicoptères russes Mi-35.

L’administration Trump prête à autoriser la vente de 12 avions d’attaque A-29 Super Tucano au Nigeria


Posté dans Afrique, Diplomatie, Forces aériennes par Laurent Lagneau Le 11-04-2017




Durant les derniers mois de son mandat, l’ex-président Obama avait bloqué la vente d’équipements militaires à Bahreïn et au Nigeria en avançant des raisons liées au respect des droits de l’Homme. Mais son successeur à la Maison Blanche, Donald Trump, a une toute approche.

Ainsi, fin mars, Washington a finalement levé son veto à la vente d’avions de combat F-16 à Bahreïn. « Il y a des moyens plus efficaces pour pousser des partenaires à modifier leurs politiques que de publiquement conditionner des ventes d’armes de cette manière », a en effet justifié Rex Tillerson, le chef de la diplomatie américaine, lors d’une audition au Congrès.

Et l’on s’oriente vers une décision identique pour le Nigeria, qui souhaite acquérir une douzaine d’exemplaire de l’avion d’attaque léger A-29 Tucano, un appareil conçu par le constructeur brésilien Embraer et équipé par la firme américaine Sierra Nevada Corp.

L’administration Obama était toutefois sur le point de donner son accord à cette vente avant finalement de se raviser, après le bombardement – par erreur – d’un camp de réfugiés par l’aviation militaire nigériane, en janvier dernier.

Seulement, si l’armée nigériane s’est rendue coupable d’exactions – comme en décembre 2015, avec le massacre de 347 musulmans chiites dans l’État de Kaduna – elle est aussi en première ligne contre Boko Haram, une organisation jihadiste dont une partie prend ses instructions auprès de l’État islamique (EI). Et pour le président Trump, cela pèse plus lourd dans la balance.

Selon les confidences faites par des responsables militaires à l’Associated Press, la Maison Blanche est en effet sur le point d’envoyer au Congrès une « notification formelle » pour autoriser, la vente de « 12 A-29 Super Tucano avec des équipements sophistiqués de ciblage pour près de 600 millions de dollars ».

Cela étant, cette information n’est pas une surprise. En février dernier, au cours d’un entretien téléphonique avec son homologue nigérian, Muhammadu Buhari, le président Trump fit part de son intention de renforcer la coopération bilatérale entre Washington et Abuja, en évoquant, en particulier, la signature d’un nouvel accord et la fourniture d’armes pour combattre les groupes terroristes.

“Nigerian Navy receives more Epenal security boats
Erwan de Cherisey, Paris - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
02 May 2017
The Nigerian Navy took delivery of eight Epenal inshore patrol craft that were donated by the Government of Rivers State during a ceremony held in Port Harcourt on 28 April.
Rivers' governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike said the new craft are to be used by the navy to provide security to the coasts and waterways of his state and will not be used in other states. He added that his administration would procure a further 13 boats for use by the Nigerian Navy, Army, and Police.
The donated craft are Security Patrol Boats (SPBs) that are produced by the Epenal Group, a Port Harcourt-based shipyard.
According to Epenal, the SPB is 8.2 m-long craft with a hull made of glass-reinforced plastic. It is propelled by a pair of Yamaha 250 hp outboard engines that give it a maximum speed of more than 35 kt. It is able to accommodate up to seven people and has two weapon mounts fitted aft and fore that have ballistic shields and can be armed with machine guns or automatic grenade launchers.”

“Nigerian Air Force commissions first Mi-35Ms
Erwan de Cherisey, Paris - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
27 April 2017
The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) formally commissioned its first two new Mil Mi-35M attack helicopters during an event held at Makurdi Air Base on 22 April to mark the service's 53rd anniversary.
One of the NAF's two new Mil Mi-35M attack helicopters. (Nigerian Air Force)
The two helicopters are the first of 12 Mi-35Ms ordered by Nigeria as part of its efforts to modernise its military capabilities. NAF Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar said they will significantly boost counter-insurgency capabilities, particularly for operations against Boko Haram militants in northeast Nigeria.
Designed to operate at night and in all weather conditions, the Mi-35M is the most modern variant of the Mi-24 'Hind' family of attack helicopters. The NAF has been operating second-hand Mi-24s for many years, but these are its first new attack helicopters and the first Mi-35Ms that Russian Helicopters has delivered to a Sub-Saharan country, although it was recently revealed that Mali also has at least one on order.
The Mi-35M comes with an OPS-24N targeting and surveillance system and a chin-mounted twin-barrelled 23 mm gun. The NAF displayed its new helicopters with an external fuel tank, a pod for 80 mm S-8 rockets, another for a twin-barrelled 23 mm gun, and a pair of unidentified (either 9M114 Shturm or 9M120 Ataka) anti-tank missiles.
During its anniversary celebrations, the NAF also displayed its locally developed Gulma unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and conducted demonstrations that included a fly-by with three new Diamond DA40 aircraft, a type it appears to be using in the training role.
Ceremonial colours were presented to the newly established NAF Special Operations Command. Air Marshal Abubakar announced in January 2017 that this would be formed with its headquarters in Bauchi.
Six pilots, two of which undertook training at the King Hussein Air College in Jordan, while the other four trained at the International Helicopter Flying School of Enugu, Nigeria, also received their wings during the ceremony.”

25 new armoured vehicles showcased at Tin Can Island Ports Complex



The Nigerian armed forces have received 25 new armored personnel carriers developed by STREIT Group.

According to the Nigerian Defence Minister, this is the first batch of the 177 armored vehicles procured by the federal government.

In a statement obtained by TRADE NEWSWIRE from the Principal Manager, Public Affairs, NPA, Ibrahim Nasiru, on behalf of the General Manager, Public Affairs of the Authority, the Armoured vehicles, which were manufactured in 2016 in the United Arab Emirate (UAE), was received by the Minister of Defence, Gen. Mansur Dan-Ali (Rtd.) from NPA MD on Friday at Tin Can Island Port, in Lagos.

The Minister commended the Management of the Nigerian Ports Authority for their continuous support and seamless synergy with the Federal Government, especially with the quick clearance of the vehicles, added that though, the insurgence have largely been defeated, but the 4×4 military hardware would further help to push them out of their various hideouts.

The Nigerian armed forces received the Spartan 4×4 Armored Personnel Carriers and Typhoon 4×4 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles.

Spartan 4×4 is an Armored Personnel Carrier can be deployed for various missions, peace keeping operations and convoy escort. The vehicle offers excellent protection against both ballistic and blast threats with crew compartment protection of CEN Level BR6 armor in various applications ranging from a battle field ambulance up to a fully armed direct fire vehicle.

Typhoon 4×4 is a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle / MRAP which is used primarily as a mounted infantry troop carrier and ground support vehicle for dismounted troops and can be easily configured as command and control vehicle, medical evacuation platform or as a forward observation platform (FOO). The vehicle offers its occupants blast protection to STANAG 4569 Level 3. Typhoon features a V-shaped monocoque armored hull design that offers advanced protection to the 10 man crew. Typhoon benefits from superior off-road mobility. The crew capacity consists of a driver, commander, 8 dismounts and a gunner.

L'armée nigériane refuse d'enquêter sur des commandants mis en cause


AFP 15/06/2017


L'armée nigériane a annoncé mercredi qu'aucune enquête ou poursuite ne serait engagée contre des hauts gradés, mis en cause dans un rapport d'Amnesty International pour des exactions commises dans le conflit avec le groupe jihadiste Boko Haram.

Le rapport "Des galons aux épaules, du sang sur les mains", publié en juin 2015, citait six commandants, en activité ou à la retraite, accusés d'être responsables de meurtre, torture ou de disparitions.

Plus de 1.200 personnes ont été tuées, des milliers d'autres arrêtées, de manière arbitraire pendant les 8 années de conflit, selon l'ONG de surveillance pour les droits de l'Homme.

Toutefois, le général Nuhu Angbazo a déclaré mercredi à la presse, deux ans après la publication du rapport qu'il n'y avait "aucune preuve" contre les commandants cités.

Les accusations contre l'armée nigériane, souvent décriée pour l'usage excessif de la force, ne sont pas rares, mais sont rarement poursuivies en justice. Le président Muhammadu Buhari, ancien militaire, s'était toutefois engagé à enquêter sur ce rapport.

D'autres accusations, faites cette fois par Human Rights Watch, de meurtres arbitraires et de viols dans les camps de déplacés, ont également été rejetée par le général Angbazo.
Il a également répété que les forces de sécurité nigérianes n'ont pas tué 150 manifestants indépendantistes pour le Biafra (sud-est) depuis août 2015, comme l'affirme Amnesty.

Toutefois, il a reconnu que les citoyens pouvaient s'inquiéter de la durée que peuvent prendre les "vérifications" menées dans les prisons militaires dans le contexte de l'insurrection contre Boko Haram: chaque civil libéré par l'armée au fur et à mesure que celle-ci récupère des territoires, doit prouver qu'il n'a aucun lien avec le groupe jihadiste.
"Les retards accumulés pour juger les détenus, qui parfois peuvent même engendrer leur mort en garde-à-vue est inacceptable. Chaque citoyen a le droit à un jugement libre", à un soutien juridique, a affirmé le général Angbazo.

En avril, l'UNICEF s'était inquiété du nombre d'enfants détenus par les armées des quatre pays de la région (Nigeria, Niger, Tchad, Cameroun) qui combattent Boko Haram. "En 2016, près de 1.500 enfants étaient sous détention administrative".

L'année dernière, Amnesty International avait alerté les autorités sur ces conditions de détention "horribles": les personnes interrogées souffrent de "maladies, de faim, de déshydratation et de blessures par balle". 149 personnes, dont 11 enfants de moins de 6 ans sont morts dans les casernes de l'Etat du Borno (nord-est du Nigeria) entre janvier et mai 2016.

L’administration américaine approuve la vente de 12 avions d’attaque A-29 Super Tucano au Nigéria


Posté dans Afrique, Forces aériennes par Laurent Lagneau Le 05-08-2017




Quand Barack Obama était à la Maison Blanche, l’administration américaine était réticente à livrer des armes au Nigéria, alors aux prises avec le groupe jihadiste Boko Haram, lié à l’État islamique, notamment en raison des violations des droits de l’homme commises dans ce pays (les forces gouvernementales ont été accusées d’avoir massacré 347 musulmans chiites dans l’État de Kaduna, en décembre 2015) et de la corruption constatée au sein de l’armée nigériane.

Cela étant, vers la fin de son mandat, le président Obama était sur le point de donner son accord pour la livraison d’avions d’attaque légers A-29 Super Tucano aux forces aériennes nigérianes… avant de se raviser après le bombardement, par erreur, d’un camp de réfugiés par ces dernières.

Mais l’élection de Donald Trump à la Maison Blanche a changé la donne. En février, lors d’un entretien téléphonique, il avait ainsi fait part à son homologue nigérian, Muhammadu Buhari, de son intention de renforcer la coopération militaire entre Washington et Abuja afin de combattre les groupes terroristes.

Aussi, c’est sans surprise que la Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), qui gère les exportations de matériels militaires américains, a recommandé au Congrès d’accepter la livraison de 12 A-29 Super Tucano au Nigéria. Les parlementaires américains ont désormais 30 jours pour éventuellement s’y opposer.

Le montant de ce contrat a été évalué à 593 millions de dollars, somme qui comprend, outre les 12 avions, des munitions et des formations, dont certaines porteront sur le droit des conflits armés et les droits de l’homme ainsi que sur les opérations air-sol afin de « réduire les dommages » causés aux civils.

Dans son avis, la DSCA explique que les A-29 Super Tucano, qui seront fournis par Sierre Nevada Corp (associé à Embraer) appuieront « les opérations militaires nigérianes contre les organisations terroristes ‘Boko Haram’ et ‘État islamique en Afrique de l’Ouest' » ainsi que celles visant à lutter contre les trafics au Nigéria et dans le golfe de Guinée.

« Le Nigéria est un partenaire important des États-Unis dans le cadre de la lutte contre l’État islamique et ses filiales en Afrique », poursuit la DSCA. « La vente proposée et les formations associées font partie d’une coopération de sécurité américaine plus large visant à professionnaliser, moderniser et renforcer les capacités des forces armées nigérianes, plaide-t-elle encore.

Reste donc à voir ce que décidera le Congrès, sachant que la loi Leahy interdit toute formation à des unités militaires coupables de violations des droits de l’homme sur des civils…

Pour rappel, l’A-29 Super Tucano est turbopropulseur pouvant être armé de 2 mitrailleuses de 12,7 mm et disposant de 5 pylônes sous les ailes lui permettant d’emporter un canon de 20mm, des nacelles lance-roquette ou bien encore des bombes. Cet appareil participe aux évaluations actuellement menées par l’US Air Force dans le cadre de son programme OA-X.

Nigerian Navy wants $1.3 billion acquisition programme

Written by Oscar Nkala/defenceWeb, Thursday, 10 August 2017




The Seaward Defence Boat NNS Andoni.The Nigerian Navy needs $1.3 billion to acquire new hardware to secure its territorial waters, according to Navy Chief of Naval Staff (CNS) Vice-Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas, who is seeking the acquisition of at least five new ships.

Addressing a public hearing organised by the House of Representatives Committee on Maritime Safety and Administration, Ibas said the required long term acquisitions include a general-purpose frigate valued at $350 million, a long-endurance Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) valued at $120 million, a medium-endurance OPV estimated at $60 million, a landing platform dock ship worth $350 million and a landing ship-tank valued $90 million.

Other required assets include a submarine worth $300 million, a Seaward Defence Boat (SDB) worth $10 million and a specialised naval security helicopter at an estimated cost of $25 million.

Ibas said the new equipment would help the navy fully secure the country’s territorial waters against piracy, armed robbery at sea, crude oil theft and illegal bunkering, poaching, smuggling, vandalism, kidnapping, proliferation of small arms, illegal waste dumping and oil pollution.

However, he said the navy was concerned about the 'substantially progressive decrease' in government budgetary allocations for its capital and overhead expenditures since 2012.

In 2016, the Nigerian Navy took delivery of several naval defence assets and platforms in a fleet recapitalization programme that involved local construction and servicing of naval vessels.

The new offshore patrol vessels NNS Unity and NNS Karaduwa were delivered by Chinese company Poly Technologies and commissioned alongside other boats that were produced or re-fitted locally.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara, last month said that Nigeria is said to be losing about N7 trillion ($19 billion) annually in the maritime sector due to leakages in revenue generation and insecurity in the water ways.

“Between January and March 2016, several attacks were reported off Nigeria’s coast. This was said to involve pirates stealing cargoes of crude oil and petroleum products. Reports had it that, no fewer than 44 ship crew members were abducted. In the first half of this year, about over 20 commercial vessels were attacked in Nigerian waters. The increasing level of attacks and violence in the Gulf of Guinea have given Nigeria and other countries in the sub-region very damaging and negative image in addition to an estimated monthly loss of $1.5 billion to the country.”

“[The] prevalence of insecurity in our waters resulted in the loss of $1.3 billion annually to Illegal Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing in West Africa alone yearly. We must tighten the legal and regulatory framework to stop these losses. The only way to promote intra- African trade in our water ways is to ensure safety and security of navigation in our waters.

“What is disturbing is that pirate attacks in West Africa are said to be occurring in our territorial waters, terminals and harbours and not in the high seas which effectively stopped intervention by international naval forces. Thus, the onus is on the Nigerian Navy to stem the tide and secure our territorial waters.”

Ibas said that spending more on the Nigerian Navy would save the country $4.4 billion from oil theft, $1 billion from illegal fishing and additional $6.70 billion from general insecurity annually.

Nigerian Air Force inducts Super Mushshak trainers


Written by defenceWeb, Friday, 11 August 2017




A Nigerian Air Force Super Mushshak.The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) on 8 August inducted five new Super Mushshak trainer aircraft into service, and graduated 16 new pilots from 401 Flying Training School at Kaduna.

The NAF said it was the first time in over 30 years that NAF cadets of the Nigerian Defence Academy Kaduna graduated from flying training before being commissioned as officers.

The newly inducted aircraft, which were part of the NAF’s first batch of 10 Super Mushshak aircraft procured from Pakistan, were recently received by the NAF. The inducted aircraft are all brand new and are fitted with digital glass cockpits, the NAF said. Another five are expected to arrive in Nigeria in December this year.

Acting President Professor YemiOsinbajo, who was represented by the Honourable Minister of Defence, Mansur Mohammed Dan Ali, said one of the major security policy thrusts of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is the building of the capacity of the Armed Forces. “We have since embarked on qualitative training and acquisition of new platforms and other supporting equipment for the Armed Forces and security agencies. We have also sanitised the procurement process of military hardware with a view to eliminating corruption and inefficiency. This has contributed in no small way to the acquisition of these new aircraft without any encumbrances,” he stated.

The Acting President congratulated the newly graduated pilots for the accomplishment in completing the primary flying training in a record time.

Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal SadiqueAbubakar, said the NAF recently reactivated 12 grounded aircraft. “We have attained between 63 to 70 per cent aircraft serviceability rate as against about 35 per cent aircraft serviceability rate two years ago", he said.

Abubakar also noted that the facilities at NAF bases had improved tremendously in the past two years with the training assistance the NAF receives from the British Military Advisory Training Team (BMATT).

Invited guests were later treated to an aerial display, involving several acrobatics, by one of the new Super Mushshaks. They also visited the Air Force Research and Development Centre in Kaduna, where they inspected some ongoing research such as the Gulmaunmanned aerial vehicle, unguided rockets and the powered chute aircraft, the NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information said.

Nigeria receives two more Ocea patrol vessels


Written by defenceWeb, Wednesday, 06 September 2017




An FPB 72 patrol boat.The Nigerian Navy has received two FPB 72 patrol vessels from France’s Ocea shipyard, and has ordered another three.

The two vessels were seen undergoing tests at St Nazaire at the end of August prior to delivery and were subsequently loaded onto a cargo vessel for transport to Nigeria, reports Meret Marine. They are named NNS Shiroro and NNS Ose (P185 and P186).

The FPB 72s are 24 metres long and 5.8 metres wide. They can reach a speed of up to 35 knots and have a range of 600 miles at 12 knots. Crew is ten. They are equipped with a rigid-hulled inflatable boat on the aft deck.

News of the contract emerged in February this year, when it was revealed that Nigeria had ordered the two FPB 72s as well as two FPB 110 Mk II coastal patrol vessels. The latter are currently under construction. Similar to the vessels delivered to Kuwait, they have conventional propellers rather than water jets. They are 35 metres long and have a maximum speed of 30 knots. They can be fitted with machineguns or a 20/30 mm cannon and a rigid-hulled inflatable boat. Up to 17 people can be carried.

Meret Marine reports that Nigeria has now ordered another three FPB 72s, which will be delivered along with the two FPB 110s by 2018.

Ocea has delivered a number of vessels to Nigeria, including three FPB 72s in 2012 and a 32 metre FPB 98 Mk II in 2013, which were ordered by the Nigerian Port Authority for use by the Nigerian Navy.

They are used to combat maritime crime, oil theft and militant groups that have staged disruptive attacks on oil platforms and pipeline infrastructure. Kidnapping, maritime robbery, human trafficking and drug smuggling are also rampant along the West African coast with over-stretched and poorly equipped regional security forces struggling to control the situation.

Nigerian Air Force inducts Bell 412 into service


Written by defenceWeb, Monday, 06 November 2017




A Nigerian Air Force Bell 412.The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has officially inducted into service the first of two Bell 412 helicopters that had earlier been impounded by customs.

NAF Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, inducted the first Bell 412 into service during a ceremony on 1 November, according to the NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information (DOPRI).

The two helicopters were handed over to the NAF on 27 January this year after they were seized on 7 November 2016 when the importer could not produce end user certificates. They were originally destined for Rivers State to protect oil and gas facilities and were equipped with night vision equipment, armour plating and cameras. They were supposed to bypass import duties.

The NAF said that as the helicopters had been partially disassembled in containers for around two years at the time of handover, the aircraft’s major systems and cameras had to be sent to the United States and Canada for overhaul and repair in order to be airworthy.

“The helicopter’s major systems were later reassembled at the NAF’s 631 Aircraft Maintenance Depot (ACMD) at Ikeja thereby providing an opportunity for the attachment of NAF engineers and technicians towards further building their technical capacities. The second Bell 412 Helicopter is still undergoing reactivation at 631 ACMD and would be inducted into the NAF immediately after reactivation,” the NAF said.

The new helicopter will be deployed to the Northeast as part of the efforts to strengthen the counterterrorism campaign against Boko Haram.

Abubakar pointed out the Bell 412 comes with a surveillance camera with night capability. He added that the NAF had already trained its pilots, engineers and technicians to operate and maintain the new helicopter. Furthermore, arrangements have been made to ensure the availability of spares and ground support equipment.

The NAF has partnered with Africair on the maintenance, repair and support of the Bell 412s. During the induction ceremony, Abubakar was brought up to speed on efforts to extend the service life of one of the NAF’s C-130 transports and the inspection of one of the ATR 42 surveillance aircraft being facilitated by Overland Airways.
